Y is for Yuletide


Hello, the first of December can you believe it! 


I am sharing with you my card for our new theme at ABC Challenges which is:


Y is for Yuletide


So for the next two weeks we are celebrating Christmas and would love you to join us!


Our sponsor is The Paper Shelter and I have used a beautiful image called "Hope".


I have coloured the image in with Copic Markers and added lots of snow some with punches, embellishments and liquid pearls.


The beautiful papers that i used inspired the colours for my image.


Here is my card:
